Overview

Vetiver root has been utilized for its fragrance for many years. It has been used to scent fabric, and woven into baskets, mats, and window coverings.

Packaging

10 mL, 1/2 oz., 1 oz., and 2 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. 4 oz. and larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Label Update

We are currently transitioning to a smudge proof label for our essential oils. If ordering more than one oil you may receive both types of labels as we make this transition. Our new labels are a poly-base and printed in full color in-house.

Herbal Miscellany

Vetiver is also used for erosion control. The roots of most grasses grow horizontally, but the vetiver root grows downward making it a good stabilizing plant for wet areas.

Precautions

This oil may contain isoeugenol. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.

Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
